** The two shots in which the pilots enter the trench. It's pretty obvious that [[StockFootage they're the same shot reused twice]]. But it's so awesome you probably won't care.

** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Leia had several different hairstyles considered]] before her distinctive "cinnamon bun" hairdo was chosen, which included long blonde hair. Then, ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' revealed that Leia was twins with the blond Luke, which would've made that blonde hairdo appropriate.

** The attitude of the head guard in Leia's detention area -- "Where are you taking this -- ''thing?''" suggests that Empire higher-ups look with disdain upon nonhumans.

** The attitude of the head guard in Leia's detention area -- "Where are you taking this -- ''thing?''" suggests that Empire higher-ups look with disdain upon nonhumans. Combined this with how all the Imperial high command are ([[EvilBrit white, male]]) humans. This was codified into DeliberateValuesDissonance with the ExpandedUniverse, where the various incarnations of the Empire certainly does look down upon most species, with only humans and Sith species (before the latter died out)considered worthy of full citizenship and the [[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Chiss]] tolerated. Everyone else is sent to the slave pits. [[note]] The ''real'' reasons for the High Command being all {{EvilBrit}}s was twofold. One, Lucas blew his budget on the cantina scene, so he didn't have the makeup budget to make alien commanders for that scene. Two, there was a law at the time stating that filmmakers working in theUK had to have a certain percentage of British actors in their production. Lucas, being something of a dick, decided to put his "required percentage" of UK actors around the villains' table as a way of showing what he thought of those quotas. [[/note]]

** Luke's grumbling that if there's an exciting part of the galaxy, Tatooine is the furthest point from it becomes this when you realize what a ''large'' role it plays in the expanded universe.

** Han's snark about not being sure if he likes Leia or wants to shoot her rides the lines of this, HilariousInHindsight, HeartwarmingInHindsight, and HarsherInHindsight. Yes, Han, you decide you like her. Enough to ''marry'' her in two different timelines. Just don't ask about your sons in ''either'' timeline. ''Legends'' leans more to HeartwarmingInHindsight (even though Anakin dies, and Jacen turns out...badly, they're still HappilyMarried, raising their granddaughter, and Jaina turns out fine), but [[Film/TheForceAwakens Disney]] canon turns out more HarsherInHindsight (due to "Kylo Ren" turning out more or less like a worse version of Jacen ''and'' the implication they divorced).

* FightSceneFailure: The lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader is rather awkward to watch, even compared to the fights within in the other films of the trilogy and especially those of the prequels and ''Film/TheForceAwakens''. It was a result of the original lightsaber props being very heavy to hold, yet so fragile that they were constantly broken. In-story, it's [[HandWaved handwaved]] as a combo of Obi Wan's advanced age and being out of practice, and Vader's clunky cyborg enhancements and injuries from their duel on [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Mustafar]] holding him back, in addition to realizing he didn't have to waste time going full throttle on Obi Wan.
